As a lesbian, I can find Carmilla a hard story to grapple with. Certainly, Le Fanu was homophobic and warning against women turning their affections towards other women and no longer allowing men in our lives. However, the reclamation of Carmilla as a feminist lesbian immigrant disabled POC vampire is so powerful. Machado definitely makes the annotations that I wish I could have in previous English literature classes I've taken, and with the illustrations I'm absolutely enthralled into the world of Carmilla and Laura.
